It’s a 4:05 p.m. start today at Nationals Park. Gio Gonzalez will make his first start since his mini-implosion in Oakland, and the Nationals will face burly, fastball-chucking Bartolo Colon. Nate McLouth is in left against the right-hander, and otherwise the Nationals are going with what’s become their usual lineup.
